Have you seen the adaption of 'Going Postal' yet? Claire Foy IS Adora Belle Dearheart. Top class casting and acting.

Ye and The Colour of Magic, Troll Bridge and Good Omens.
I was expecting Troll Bridge to be longer, it's on Youtube

Take my advice, don't listen to me.

Loved the song over the end credits :)

Right now I'm chillin' on a beach a little north of where I live.  :hammock: Tomorrow I'll be heading further north to visit family for Christmas. 

I'm not much of a beach person, and it's been a while since I've set foot on the sand  but it's been fun! And this part of the Brazilian coastline is absolutely gorgeous (photos soon!). :tellmemore:

So far, I've occupied myself by keeping tabs on the match between my mother and the ocean waves (FYI,  mom 0 x Waves 5275) and struggling to get Aladdin's flying beach carpet to calm down on the floor. I did eventually.

I swear to god some guy just swum past me with a white bucket on his head. I took a few pics because nobody would believe me! :lol:

Sorry to disappoint, I opted to go only visit beaches far from the more touristy circuit, so there were way less people.  :P

But, there were:

Seagulls.



Ancient pillars to hold the sky.



Boulders on sand grains.



Views from high up trekking paths.



Ridges flanking the shore.



There was even a pirate ship. I wonder where they were heading to bury their treasure?

Unfortunately the quality of these photos aren't very good because he was so far away, but here he is (zoomed in):

I cannot imagine that you are a typical Brazilian or typical of any other nations.  Here, I am interpreting the word typical to be synonymous or at least similar to the word; ordinary. You are far from ordinary. 

Semantic gaming not intended. I hang around this forum because I am exposed to some pretty damned intelligent people with whom I am pleased to associate.  Yeah, yeah, I know it is ill advised to count one's self as too many. Despite that wisdom, I claim that We and you are special....and we ain't, any of us, typical.   To hell with Dunning and Kruger.

He must be an unattractive foreigner, ashamed of his looks compared to all the gorgeous Brazilian guys at the beach.

If you're swimming to a spot where you anticipate having a use for a bucket, it seems eminently sensible to carry it that way.
